Tinderbox detail.png

The tinderbox is a tool used primarily for lighting fires using the Firemaking skill and lighting light sources such as candles and lanterns. It can be stored on the tool belt.

Obtaining tinderboxes[edit | edit source]

Purchase[edit | edit source]

The average spawn rate at a general store for the full stock 10 tinderboxes is 9 minutes and 10 seconds. This means the first spawn is 10 seconds after all the tinderboxes have been bought, and one minute per every other tinderbox.

Tinderbox spawns[edit | edit source]

  • Top floor of Draynor Manor near Professor Oddenstein's machine
  • By the wardrobe in Captain Dulcin's ritual room in the Black Knights' Fortress
  • On the wrecked ship on the north of Harmony Island
  • Next to furnace in the eastern wilderness ruins
  • Searching certain shelves of the Wise Old Man's home gives a tinderbox, possibly book(s) and a message questioning why he keeps so many tinderboxes. This is likely due to Dionysus's eventual assault upon the Wizards' Tower. Though it is possible to quickly obtain multiple tinderboxes from it, your character will only take one at a time, and only if your inventory has none; this can be easily bypassed through the drop trick.

Other sources[edit | edit source]

They can be obtained from a Tool store 2 in a Player-owned house workshop.

Use with skills[edit | edit source]

In addition to Firemaking, it is also used in Summoning as the tertiary ingredient of a pyrelord. It is also used in Construction to create certain objects such as a flame pit in an oubliette. It is also used in Invention to create a pyro-matic.
